Corrections

  • Flawless Oak need to roll 3 + 1 Limit Break Rolls
    • Since event already happened, I don't want to back track. So if he should break, he will break at the beginning of next Session
    • This limit break condition is when the Indulgent or Intemperate Nature of people hinders him. Thus I feel justified that he need to roll 3 times
      1. When he had to go through great trouble because a little girl is being intempered and her guardian is being indulgent. Which ended up having to lug that Palanquin to Asamo's Estate
      2. When she refuse to behave and try to tear apart the Barricade, even though Flawless Oak later concluded that she was possessed by the Dema Sutra the Great Curse shouldn't take into consideration discoveries in the future. His original conclusion was that the kid was being a brat and is going to kill them all.
      3. When you had to lug that Palanquin back to Chiaroscuro - same reason as #1
    • I however will not force Flawless Oak to roll limit each time someone ask him to cast a spell for frivolous [to him] reasons
    • I will also waive the fact that he may have seen the Golden Custodian's judgement on the Food Shipments intempered, but that is pretty gray area since the food does look strange and the source questionable.
    • But I am adding +1 for Brendo not remembering his own Limit Break Conditions
  • Flawless Oak and Primary Virtue
    • Flawless Oak's Primary Virtue is Temperance and it is 3
    • This means he has to fail Temperance Virtue Check before he can indulge in his eroge.
    • If he succeeds then he has to use Willpower to override it. In which case he gain a point of limit, for suppressing his primary virtue.
    • Though I do not like to depend on dice for roleplaying. So Brendo, you should add a point of limit yourself whenever you feel he has sinned sufficiently.
  • Solidified Prayer
    • After reading over the Charm rules in the Core Book (Pg. 379) I realized that they naturally occure. I would think the highest mortal authority of the Unconquered Sun's very action should be considered miraculous.
    • There for the Solidified Prayer Bracelet will function as a 3 Dot Charm that will negate the first 3 virtue botches in relation to living up to the prayer per Story
      • This is not an power he chooses to use. It will negate the first 3 botches. So there is no saving it for later, or keeping the botch result for whatever reason.
      • This only works on Botches on any Virtue tests in relationship to his forswearing of enslavement to Demons



Incompleted Arcs

  • Trying to find Alabaster Eye of the Heaven's origins in Chiaroscaro
  • The Cleansing of the South
    • Word have been sent to Flawless Oak and Alabaster that the Golden Custodian of South and West is on his way to back to the South.
      • (He already arrived in Session 40)
      • The message mentioned a cleansing of the South
      • While I have no plans for you guys to get involved, Flawless Oak might interceed since Zombie Infection is one of his major personal issues. Alabaster doesn't care a bit about Mecca so it is not like he will insist on leaving people in need to pursuit an artifact.
    • Dagnir will leave soon; Leading the Astartes to track down and end the Death Cult, whom he suspects is the cause of the plague
      • He will issue a call to arms to all Solars of the South, thus Horakinis, Andraste, Klytaimnēstra, and Circle of Everlasting and Perfect Illuminated Harmony will join him. Alabaster Hand of the Heaven and Flawless Oak's mission is more important so they are excluded.
      • As per Samea's instructions, any community that are found to be "contaminated" are to be eradicated, the people are to be held for redoctrination. Those who are deemed too far gone are to be purified by fire.
      • Samea is too busy with the Amalgam program in the East
      • Panther arrived to everyone's surprise and tempered this ruthless business with Compassion and Temperance
        • Dace is going to be commander of the south in his absence
        • Arianna is working on a secret project for the Bull of the North (WMD Research)
        • Swan is busy working alongside Maximillian hoping to achieve diplomatic victory for the conquest of hundred kingdoms.
        • Harmonious Jade has already infiltrated the City of Thorns and is investigating its power structure seeking weaknesses. Unfortunately she will soon realize Mask of Winter's organization is all but impenetrable and cannot be toppled from below. She needs to decapitate the snake.
        • Many communities were saved by Panther's glorious words and avoided the ashen fate that would have awaited them.
        • The Imperial Fist were so moved that they asked Panther their patron Solar, and Panther accepted the honor
  • The Kind Hearted Prince
    • With the North, West, and South facing food shortages the Silver Prince of the Skullstone Kingdom started sending fleets laden with grains (grown in the Underworld) all over the world. Free to those too poor to afford it, and at cost for those who can pay for it.
      • What the world does not yet know is that any non-enlightend being1 who partakes food or drink from the Underworld will arise as Ghost when they die, instead of going to the renew cycle of luthe.
    • North
      • Northern communities would never turn away free food that is safe and without strings, so Silver Prince encountered fertile ground for his propaganda.
      • Whitewall being ruled by the Syndices does not allow anything from the Undead entering its walls, that includes food.
      • The Bull of the North does not allow his troops and their families from partaking the food. Others can choose it of their own volition.
    • East
      • The Guild have signed contract for enormous sums of food to be sold to the hungry communities
      • Lookshy always being independent refuses all outside interferrence
      • Rathess is too remote, plus Silver Prince knows better to tinker with the City of the Sun
      • Hundred Kingdoms are too far inland, even thought connected by the Great River. Ravaged by War, they gladly purchase the food transported by the Guild at a discount.
    • South
      • The An-Tang Provences pay lip service to the Realm Generals about not accepting Skullstone Trade, while "independent" merchants take entire convoy loads and sell them on the "black market". The prolific nature of these impromptu organizations are a matter of frequent request for help to the Realm Forces in An-Tang
      • Linthas make it their business sinking every convey they can threaten, on order of their Demonic Mistress. Though they have no idea why, nor do they care.
      • Lap have no shortage of food being the grain center of the South. They barred Skulstone grain ship from docking in their docks
      • Paragon does not trust Skullstone and thus does not allow his own people from taking the food.
      • The Hijra is desperate enough to take anything. Earning the Silver Prince near Saint status in their eyes.
      • The Golden Custodian of South and West on the guarentee of Captain Moray Darktide opened his lands to the Trade Ships - Subjected to Azulas' approval, which she granted, being no stranger to profitable dealings with unconventional partners.
    • West
      • The various nations of the West are not hard hit by the Food Shortage. They never had much of an surplus and did not have the habit of selling things they need thinking next harvest will more than make up for it.
      • Though most independent islands gladly takes the free food
      • On the other hand Ocean Pearl with no proof but an adamant faith that the Prince is up to no good is sinking as many ship as she can find - preventing the food from reaching the hungry or the most vulnerable (depending on who you ask).
    • Blessed Realm
      • The Blessed Realm and the Immaculate Order consider Skullstone Archipelago an abomination, a cancer that is too troublesome to remove with the current turmoil - but has full intention of doing so when oppurturnity arises.
      • Thus the Skullstone trade ships are blocked and passage through Realm Waters denied
      • Those that force the issue are sunk without mercy
        • This is a fact that Silver Prince's agent masterfully spins in the various Ports of the world to further discord: "The Realm sunk food for the refugees!" "xxxx village all starved to death before the food from the good prince was taken by captain xxx." etc.
        • Unfortunately the Realm is too absorbed with its own internal politics to care about these slander. Even if these people revolt the Realm need only send in the Legions and they will fall back to place. Who is on the Scarlet Throne is more important at this moment.

Sergent Pollo surprised by this and being so close to the wave crashed and was going to drown.

In a place where Time and Space holds no Meaning

  • Father and Son
    • Confirmation of Lancelot and all his Glory
    • Where Flawless Oak fought beside his father and was able to slaughter with impunity at his father's direction
  • The Memory that should not be Lost
    • The recanting of Flawless Oak's past
    • The means by which Flawless Oak adopted to the Wyld
  • Temptation of Bliss
    • While the 2 Solars are indulging in their fantasy, Laoghaire had his own as well
    • It is a fantasy where he and Horakinis are happily married
    • The arrival of Flawless Oak and his own desires for Horakinis twisted the tale towards his own fantasy, he managed to escape due to his shame at what he is doing to a friend but it was too late
    • Alabaster's Arrival further twisted the tale to his own insecurities putting into form his own half-formed fear of Alabaster Eye of the Heaven perferring the charismatic and charming Dragon-Blooded over him
  • Flawless Oak has adopted to the Wyld by forming his Ring of Temperance
  • Laoghaire adopted to the Wyld by forming his Cup of Compassion
  • Alabaster is incapable of interacting with the limitless potential of the Wyld and thus formed a stunted broken thing that could not exist and thus immediately faded away
  • The Burden of Heroes
    • As the players wander further attracted to the whims of the Unshaped the dreams became increasingly directed by the greater will that exists in infinity. The deep regret and fear of Flawless Oak was used to seed a grand story of seperation, reunion, and fufillment and tearful parting.
    • Flawless Oak after being thought dead for 10 years returned at Creations darknest hour. To a son that does not know his father, to Ticca dying of heartbreak, and unable to abandon duty sacrificed his life to wield the Tacticool™ Sun Cannon - Mecca the Golden Blade. He banished Ma-Ha-Suchi, and redeamned Thorns bring the Eye of the Unconquered Sun back onto Creation. As he lay dying his Circle mate brought forth his young son and the last memory before his death was his sun saying how much he was missed and loved.
    • While the ignorant might be intoxicated by these gradiose dreams the Solars are well trained by Swan and did not fell sway to the addictive nature of the Wyld.
